If you love the Magyk series this is a great book to have to add to your collection. It was entertaining to read while waiting for the next book in the series to come out. It's full of beautiful illustrations and contained more information and background on the characters that you won't necessarily see in the regular series. It's true to Angie Sage's style with humor infused throughout.

The Magykal papers exploits the secret journals and classified papers of the Castle. It also included the Egg-On-Toast Restaurant Review and pamphlets written by the prestigious Silas Heap. Get to know the Heap clan like you never have before! Written with Angie Sage's classic humour and excellent word choice, the Magykal Papers is a must read for all Septimus Heap Lovers!

I have a son finishing fifth grade and he has read every one of Angie Sage's books. He enjoyed the fictional works that delved into fantasy, mistical, magical, tragedy, humor, honor and believing in ones self. We applaud Angie Sage for creating charachters that interest boys as well as girls. I believe that more boys would find this series interesting and thereby read more if they were available in school libraries and public libaries. I believe that elementary reading text books would be improved by including excerps from Magical Papers and Angie Sage's other works. Bravo Angie Sage you won over my son and we are looking forward to more of your works.

"Septimus Heap: The Magykal Papers," written by Angie Sage and illustrated by Mark Zug is a handbook to the much loved "Septimus Heap" series. Including a restaurant guide of the best (and worst) places to eat in town, some handy tips to being dead written by the ghost Alther Mella, biographies of characters with their pictures, and the private journals of Septimus, Jenna, Marcia Overstrand, and the Supreme Custodian, this book is the best handbook ever created! Any "Septimus Heap" fan will definitely not want to miss this magykal book with its exquisite maps, funny flyers, important letters, and much, much more!

Should I ask my school librarian to get this book? He finally got Fyre, and they already have all seven of the books in the series. My list of books the school library needs follows: Inheritance by Christopher Paolini Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan TodHunter serries as soon as they come out The Magykal Papers and the Darke Toad.

Great story if you like magyk and kind of random stuff. Great book for the people who like the Septimus Heap Series. I loved it and you would too. Just lots of pictures and a quick easy read. Worth the buy.

The Septimus Heap series has earned its place his year on my favourites list, and for good reason. Entertaining plots that sweep you along, a wonderfully and brilliantly imagined world, and a perfectly ridiculous sense of humour that is strongly reminicent of J K Rowling.However, this book is not one you would read on its own. It provides background materials and quirky observations from Angie Sage's world. It fills in some missing history, recapitulates some of the story and keeps you smiling. However, the book is not a story in its own right. This is a book for people who already love the series.But if you love the series you will want this book. Not that it is brilliant in the same way the stories are. But it is just good fun, and if you cannot get enough of Septimus Heap then this will fill your longing until the autumn when the next book is due out. It is also beautifully illustrated, and with a good few fun items to pore over and consider. It is also possible to guess which parts of this book may be used in the next one. I enjoyed this very much - but if you are new to the series, don't start here - buy "Magyk" instead.

I found this in the discount bin. We enjoy the books in the series, so I bought this. I am so glad it was only $3. There are a few brief biographical sketches and some interesting explanations, but mostly it looks like someone took all the loose papers on their desk to a publisher. It is well done and well illustrated, but does not add anything to the stories. I'd take a pass on this.

Lots of typos. Oh, and Jenna? If you want to keep a secret DO NOT write it doen or record it in any way. Anomnyty is the best form of secrecy.

Are you a Jenna person, Beetle person, or a Septimus person? I am a Jenna person.

Dear people who read this, I am totally obsessed with Septimus Heap. Whats not to love about the next Harry Potter, except lightyears funnier and generally more awesome? I love this practical guide to Angie Sages world, which, BTW, never gets old. Although i must admit that all the full color pictures can at times be creepy, if you ever need a quick reference to figure out who Linda Lane or somebody is, look no farther than this. What I like about the bios in this book are how they talk about people before the story arc started and where they came from. The Egg and Toast guide carries an invaluable message to not eat mystery sausage, a recurring theme throughout. I wont even go into how much fun it was to say Hotep Ra over and over again in seventeen different accents. I highly suggest you find a word in the book and overexaggerate it. Please, somebody post your comments about TodHunter Moon! My thoughts are slightly scary and the question hangs for me: is Marcia dead or not because sep is eow. Back to the book. It is too short and overly populated with pictures. Otherwise, downright Magykal.
